Mrs. Jane Gale
Died at the residence of her son, Mr. Jesse M. Gale, on the
6th instant, Mrs. Jane Gale age 76 years.
Mrs. Gale was among the oldest citizens of Angola, having removed
to this place about thirty-six years ago, when the site of our thriving town
was a part of a wilderness, scarcely broken.
About forty-four years ago her husband was taken from her by
death, leaving a family of seven children under her care and depending upon
her for support, five of whom are still living. Her difficult task,
however, was faithfully preformed. Her loss is mourned by a large circle
of relatives and her place in the community will be missed by many acquaintances.
A large company assembled at her funeral and followed her remains to their
last earthly resting-place. Thus another pioneer of this county has
passed within, “That low green tent whose curtain never outward swings.”
